I spend a ton of time in the kitchen so I like to have nice tools and appliances to help make it easier and a little fun. If you have someone on your holiday gift list that loves to cook I have a few suggestions for you. Here’s a few small kitchen appliance from my Gifts for the Cook list any cook would love to open on Christmas morning.
I do not know how I ever cooked rice before my rice cooker. It takes the guesswork out of making the perfect rice. Made to prepare up to 12 cups of cooked rice, this is the ultimate kitchen tool to give you an extra hand when you’re pressed for time. Simply pour in the water and rice and let the cooker prepare the rice on its own. Whether you want to cook your white rice, brown rice, or quick rice, this cooker will prepare it accordingly. Once completed, the cooker automatically switches to “keep warm” so you won’t have overcooked rice. This rice cooker carries 6 cups of uncooked rice and 12 cups of cooked rice and also doubles as a slow cooker and steamer for meats and vegetables. So you can cook your whole meal in one pot! To make the process a breeze, this cooker comes with a measuring cup, spatula, spoon, and steamer.

The red silicone grips make transferring your sweet concoctions from counter, to oven, to tabletop easy and efficient.

Even use the pieces in this set to roast a chicken with a side of oven-roasted vegetables for dinner. Made of carbon steel, these pieces have superior heat transfer to ensure consistent baking results every time. The nonstick design delivers easy food release for all your dishes, making cleanup quick and efficient.
We have a double oven and I never thought I would ever need a toaster oven. But sometimes you need to make a little something without heating up the whole oven. This is perfect for making a small snack. And is perfect for dorm rooms or offices. This medium-sized Quantum countertop compact toaster oven is ideal for cooking whole meals like pizzas and meats. With the assistance of a 60-minute timer and a stay-on feature, you can toast, bake, roast, and broil your dish as needed.
